Vasiliy Lomachenko weighed in at 134.4lbs, while Richard Commey tipped the scales at 134.2lbs ahead of their lightweight clash.
Vasiliy Lomachenko let out a laugh as he went head to head with dangerous puncher Richard Commey at the weigh-in for a crucial lightweight clash in New York.
The Ukrainian star was in peak condition as he weighed in at 134.4lbs, while Commey was also inside the limit at 134.2lbs ahead of their fight at Madison Square Garden.
Lomachenko then broke the tension with a laugh during the face-off with Commey, a knockout specialist who is being treated with caution by the three-weight world king.
“He has big power and he has reach, experience, so for me, it will be a very interesting fight for fans,” Lomachenko told Sky Sports.
“During the fight, you need to be always focusing on your strategy, and always focused on your speed and your reaction.”
Top Rank promoter Bob Arum hopes victory for Lomachenko will make him a mandatory challenger for the newly crowned unified champion George Kambosos Jnr.
“Loma is No 1 with the WBC and the WBO,” Arum told Sky Sports.
“Kambosos will make a voluntary defense then could fight Lomachenko in Australia.
“I have promoted fights in Australia. It’s a great place for fights. They have great fans who would welcome Lomachenko.
“I am optimistic that, at the end of next year, we will have Loma back fighting for the titles.”
